Medicine and Science
St. Louis, Globe Democrat
To the Editor.
In this scientific age there is a large class of thinkers who agree with Mr. Edison that material medicine is fast losing its footing. The bacteria proposition, however, is still an undemonstrated problem, but will no doubt be clearer when it is understood that things are thoughts or mental phenomena. In the language of Prof. Wilhelm Oswald of the University of Leipsic, Germany, "Matter is a thing of thought, which we have constructed for ourselves rather imperfectly to represent what is permanent in the change of phenomena." Mr. Edison is also quoted by the press as saying, "There were never so many able, active minds at work on the problems of disease as now, and all their discoveries are tending to the single truth that you cannot improve on nature." Many agree with Mr. Edison on this point; the main question, however, is, what is nature? Christian Scientists believe that the spiritual is the natural, and therefore that the law of nature, or the natural law, is the law of God, Good, and that as man becomes acquainted with this law and acts in accordance with it, he is consciously in harmony with God's government, and thus learns of his dominion over the unnatural so-called destructive laws of atomic forces, climatic conditions, etc., as well as all forms of disease and sin.
